... I think that trying to cite earliest sources is a very useful exercise. It also avoids finger-pointing and accusations from more recent authors who claim ownership of a principle or idea, if you can show the earliest source in print.

Fair enough. I was trying more to suggest what I consider necessary, as opposed to what-might-be-a-good-idea-to-cover-your-butt-as-much-as-possible.

But I would far rather see overenthusiastic crediting than a complete lack of same, which unfortunately occurs all too often in our field!

Doug, the work in print item was about harm due to diminished sales when something is no longer only available in its original - a dilution of value.
